Tree man

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I love to bike at night and have no problems until last night. My friend and I went 21 miles through the city and out into the country. While we were riding through the country, I noticed something by a tree. As I got closer the shape look like a human and I began to feel fear. When I got closer I saw the eyes of a man. I yelled "Holly crap". The man laugh at me as I rode past him.

I began to cry and hurried to catch up to my friend. I asked her if she saw a man standing by a tree and she stated no. I told her I saw someone and we were both surprised that someone would be hanging out in the woods when it was dark and 40 degrees.

I have ridden this route by myself in the dark and have enjoyed the woods sounds, but after last night ride I will ride with someone on this route. I wonder what if I had did this route by myself last night, would he have jump out in front of me and cause harm, because what right person hangs out in the woods in the dark!!

In my request for health and fitness I need to make sure safety is in place. Ride with someone, carry cell phone, good lighting on bike, tell someone were you are going and ask them to call you if gone too long. Everyone be safe out there.

    I want to say maybe he was just out for a walk like you on your ride. Either way it is a good idea to be safe. And maybe this was your heads up be alert. Glad you are okay.

    I'm very paranoid about something happening to me when I go out for runs. So now that it is getting darker earlier I'm going to make sure I have my sil's bit pull with me, that way no one will mess with me. I wait to go running until my husband gets home from work at 4pm, so he can watch the little one. It is nearly dark by then.

    So happy nothing happened to you. Keep safe!
